Hassi Berkane (“Wellspring Berkane”) is an Iberomarusian site in the Nador Province in Northeastern Morocco. A thick escargotière visible in construction trenches and underneath the rockshelter on the outskirts of the town was investigated by the team from the CRC 806 in 2014. Profiles in the trench were documented and two boreholes were drilled underneath the rockshelter. The team found lithics and faunal remains in the cores alongside terrestrial snail shell fragments, as well as multiple charcoals taken for radiocarbon dating. From the profiles and the drillings, a settlement layer of ca. 2000 square meters could be reconstructed. Not only the sheltered space beneath the rockshelter was used, but also a large open air space to the north.
